`No decision yet on nuclear plant'

Correspondent

VIZIANAGARAM: Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy on Saturday denied having said or rejected the proposal for setting up a nuclear power station (NPS) at Kovvada in Srikakulam district.

The Chief Minister told presspersons that the proposal to establish the station was first mooted at Nagarjunasagar and later it was shifted to Kovvada. The issue was discussed at length in the Assembly when N. Chandrababu Naidu was Chief Minister. Former Minister for Power K. Subbarayudu informed the House then that Atomic Energy Commission had cleared the site at Kovvada, he said, and circulated copies of the Assembly question hour proceedings to the media. He said his Government would not take up issues that troubled people and added that the NPS at Kovvada had not yet been finalised.

The Government would try to give better compensation for lands acquired for irrigation and industries. He said Botsa Jhansi Lakshmi, Congress nominee, was given the ticket on her own merit and not because she was the wife of Minister for Marketing Botsa Satyanarayana.
